The 2024 NASCAR Cup Series season kicked off with excitement, but for Noah Gragson and Ryan Preece, the start was marred by penalties. Let’s delve into the details of their infractions, the impact on their points standings, and the implications for their teams.

During the race weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, NASCAR officials confiscated roof air deflectors from the No. 10 car (driven by Noah Gragson) and the No. 41 car (driven by Ryan Preece). These non-conforming parts violated sections 14.5.6.1 A & B & C of the NASCAR Rule Book. As a result, both drivers faced significant penalties.

Gragson, two spots behind Preece, had 29 points. With the 35-point penalty, he now finds himself at -6 points. The situation is precarious, and a poor finish in the upcoming race at Las Vegas could push him even further below zero.
